spreading the infection

in the last few days i’ve made hundreds of zombies…

i mentioned a short while ago [link] that i was part of the make-up team for 2.8 hours later in liverpool.

well, these are a couple of my photos of the infected…

i was mainly on blood duty for the duration, splattering copious amounts of the red stuff onto the zombie population.  but i also spent some time doing the base make-up, giving these guys the death-like pallor that makes them look so, well… dead!

on top of prepping all of the zombies who were loose on the streets, we also got to zombify all of the survivors who didn’t survive. across the 4 days, i reckon we must created well over 500 zombies, possibly creeping up to the 1000 mark!

this is our core team of artists, with one of the game directors [photo credit here]

starting bottom left [then going clockwise] the team are: natalie levey, ruth parry, simon [centre], lucy maude, and myself  on the bottom right. also part of the team [but not pictured] were helen quinn, bobbie mckeown, and amber shorrock.

and this is a close up of natalie..

but this next shot is probably the scariest photo i have from the entire event!

the company behind it all, slingshot, are a fantastic group to work with, and they have a real focus on giving those taking part a great experience.

if the infection comes to your city – do not evacuate too soon or you might miss out on all the fun!
